Having issues with MSCOMCTL.OCX - Unable to insert specified OLE Control RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,  I am having issues with Microsoft Tabstrip Control 6.0 (SP4.0) on a Windows 2008 server.  The main issue appears to be with the fact that I cannot insert this control and the error I recieve is "Unable to insert the specified OLE control".  I have unregistered and re-registered the .ocx from c:\windows\sysWow64, but still no go.  Any help with this is appreciated.

  • Where are you trying to insert the control? Keep in mind this is a VB 6.0 component, and that development environment is no longer supported.

  • Thanks Paul - this is with a product called CygNet Studio.  CygNet is a SCADA software and yes I understand that it's a VB 6.0 component.  However, this product works fine on my production server, but not on a DEV server.

  • Not familiar with the software. Is it running 32-bit or 64-bit? MSComctl.ocx is limited to 32-bit.

  • Hi Pico J,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    This forum is to talk about visual studio IDE, I recommend you ask the question in CygNet forum, thank you for understanding.

    Best regards,

  • It is running 32-bit.  It works fine on one machine, but not another.  They are both are running Windows server 2008 SP1.

    There is one dependency, comcat.dll. I would check to see if that component is present and registered. I probably won't be able to help beyond that since I do not know anything about CygNet.
